Ronan Keating in Port Moresby

Irish-born singer Ronan Keating and his wife Storm arrived in Port Moresby yesterday afternoon.

The singer has stopped over from his album tour for a one-night performance in Port Moresby.

Ronan will be performing tonight to a crowd of more than a thousand for the People’s National Congress Party fundraising dinner at the Stanley Hotel.

He will be performing old hits such as When you say nothing at all, If tomorrow never comes, Life is a roller coaster, and Loving each day.

Ronan will also perform songs from his new album Time of My Life.

“There’s a mix of all the old stuff pretty much and I might throw in couple of new songs as well from the new album, so there will be something for everybody,” he says.

Ronan will be joined by the rest of his band members today.

Meeting him at the airport yesterday afternoon was Justin Tkatchenko, Minister for Sports, APEC and National Events.

Ronan began his tour earlier this year in August 7, promoting songs from the Time of My Life album.

The team will be leaving for Australia on Thursday, to continue the tour.

“We’ll be going to Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland from here, but it’s great to stop off for a celebration here,” Ronan said.

His wife, Storm, who grew up in Salamaua, Morobe Province, has shared many memories with him.

“We’ve always wanted to come to PNG and this has finally happened. Finally coming here is very exciting for me and also for the family.

“Hopefully we’ll get to see other parts of the country, but we’re here for a short space of time,” he said.

Ronan is also a song writer/ musician/ recording artist and philanthropist.
